OpenAI’s ChatGPT is making the rounds online and, like any type of artificial intelligence (AI), is raising questions about its potential benefits as well as potential misuse. And in a recent interview, Sam Altman, CEO of OpenAI, offered his thoughts on the potential advantages and disadvantages of AI.

During LA with StrictlyVC’s Connie Loizos, Altman was asked what he believes to be the best- and worst-case scenarios for AI.

As for the best-case scenario, he said: “I think the best-case scenario is so incredibly good that it’s hard for me to even imagine… We resolve impasses and improve everyone. ” Aspects of reality and let us live our best lives. But I absolutely can’t. I think the best scenario is so incredibly cool that you might sound like a really crazy person starting to talk about it.”

However, the OpenAI CEO’s view of the worst-case scenario was quite gloomy.

Altman said, “At the very least, and I think it’s important to say this, it’s like the lights go out for all of us.” “I am more concerned about a short-term accidental misuse case…so I think it is impossible to overestimate the importance of AI alignment and security work. I would like to see a lot more.”

Experts warn that ChatGPT can be misused for negative purposes; This includes enabling scams, cyber attacks, spreading misinformation and plagiarism.

In a StrictlyVC interview, Altman pushed back at concerns about plagiarism, saying, “I think we adapted to the calculator and changed what we tried in math class. It’s certainly more of a extreme version, but at the same time its benefits are even more extreme.”
